Tips For Using The Bona Amberseal Floor Primer
· Ensure that there are no particulates or residue matter on the tools you use to apply the Bona Amberseal Floor Primer. As you clean the tools to prepare them, don’t leave them soaked in moisture, as it will affect the efficacy of the coats you'll apply.
· Ensure that the floor has been properly acclimatised to the environment that it will be used in. This is basically giving the floor time to adapt to the temperature and humidity of the room. It will prevent the boards from shrinking, expanding, buckling, cupping or developing deep structural damage.
· Always shake the Bona Amberseal Floor Primer well before use.
· As you apply the Bona Amberseal Floor Primer, maintain a wet edge, in order to avoid overlapping.
· It's best to work during high temperatures and low humidity, which will shorten the drying time. Optimal conditions are 18-25C for the temperature, and 40-60% for the relative air humidity. The absolute minimum temperature for usage is 13C.
· Complete the floor treatment with a finish after applying the Bona Amberseal Floor Primer.
· It's recommended that you only apply a maximum of 2 full coats of primer
